I swore I would never buy a Yamaha cuz of the wide string spacing but apparently that only exists on the 5-strings models. The 4-string spacing is pretty normal. Because of the stellar reviews, I thought I would give it a shot and I'm telling you, you'd be hard-pressed to find a nicer instrument at this price point. Paid $485 for used in mint condition. You can seamlessly switch between passive and active with almost no volume drop and an LED lets you know if your battery is dying. If it does, the passive will still work and the treble knob becomes the overall tone. The fret edges were noticeably sharp though and that finally pushed me to get a fret trimming set from StewMac. The nut needs the edges rounded as well. Other than that, this bass is extremely addictive to play and I dig the sound of the pickups. Very punchy and versatile, especially after I strung it with DR Sunbeams. I also love the fact that there is no writing anywhere on the bass. No manufacturer's name emblazoned on the headstock, just a discreet and classy logo. Weighs in at exactly 8lbs, making it my lightest bass which I wasn't expecting because of the slab of flamed maple on top. Anyway, the thing is just a joy to play. I would definitely recommend this instrument to anyone.
